Stephen Colbert Is Replacing David Letterman
(R.I.P. Colbert Report)
Hey, do you like Colbert Report? Well, fuck you, it’s over. It’s all over because CBS just announced Stephen Colbert as David Letterman’s successor for The Late Show which means his Comedy Central show will end at the of 2014 when his contract was up. Although on the bright side, he’s bringing the entire staff and crew with him and started things off with this statement. Via Entertainment Weekly:
“Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career,” Colbert said. “I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead. I’m thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth.”
When reached for comment, Jimmy Fallon sang a silly song then laughed hysterically at his own jokes. It got 8 million hits on YouTube.
